NUJ moves to formal ballot on strike action at Local BBC Radio

The NUJ has informed members that two consultative ballots show a 70% rejection rate regarding proposals for Local Radio sharing.

Members have voted in favour of industrial action, meaning all NUJ members working across the sector could strike in the week commencing March 13th 2023.

A new formal ballot will now take place with papers being sent out from February 6th, closing three weeks later.

We’re expecting more details on this from the National Union of Journalists today and will update this breaking news accordingly.
